PTFA People

The Committee

Our PTFA committee consists of four officers who are elected at the AGM, usually held in October each year.  These are the Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary, plus three Ordinary Members.  The role of the elected Committee is to manage the association on behalf of all the members, which are the parents of the school as well as teachers and friends of Five Ways.  As a registered Charity the committee members have a legal duty to ensure that the PTFA acts lawfully and is managed properly. 


In addition to the committee, we rely on a willing and valuable group of volunteers and occasional helpers, who support the work of the committee and help run the fundraising events and activities.  We meet on a regular basis, usually once every month, with smaller working groups meeting as and when necessary when we are planning larger events, e.g Summer Fayre.  Without these volunteers, the PTFA would not be able to achieve the amazing things we do and raise the amount of funds we manage to achieve year on year!
